How is my new 48hour old email address on SPAMCOP

Recommended Posts

My newemail address (nishscooters[at]telstra.com) is 48 hours old I set it up tuesday night because my old address (nishimports[at]telstra.com) :angry: was on SPAMCOP BL, now this is listed already, and according to SPAMCOP has been "sending messages for 11.1 days" THIS IS IMPOSSIBLE, the account didn't exist, my business relys on this email account, I need this email address removed from the blacklist as soon as possible, how do I get this done? PLEASE HELP ME!!

Thanks,

Nick.

The SpamCop report is generated from your IP address, not your email address.

If your using DHCP to connect, swap your NIC, and you should get a new IP.

that won't change a thing. it is the IP address of the email server, not your client.

Telstra's email servers are quite often in bl.spamcop - and they seem to have earned this status.

I have recently noticed that one of Bigponds mail servers has been added to the SpamCop list.

http://www.spamcop.net/w3m?action=blcheck&ip=144.135.24.162 has blocked

Query bl.spamcop.net - 144.135.24.162

144.135.24.162 is mta10bw.bigpond.com

This may better explain your email problems. Do you use a bigpong mail server as your outgoing? I have tried to contact telstra about this but I am not a customer of theirs so they are unwilling to help me.

If what I think is correct, many thousands of people on the telstra network will be affected with their emails being bounced.

Hmm, a few more than one BigPond server listed, it seems (in addition to poor Nick's). The "neighbourhood" list is variable but over a few quick runs I currently find listings for:

144.135.24.103

144.135.24.109

144.135.24.134

144.135.24.137

144.135.24.138

144.135.24.147

144.135.24.150

144.135.24.153

144.135.24.156

144.135.24.159

144.135.24.162

144.135.24.168

144.135.24.171

144.135.24.174

144.135.25.94

144.135.25.132

144.135.25.155

144.135.25.156

144.135.25.157

144.135.25.158

144.135.25.159

144.135.25.160

144.135.25.169

144.135.25.173

144.135.25.177

144.135.25.184

144.135.25.187

So whats this? Has SpamCop declared war on the Commonwealth of Australia? Gotta be *someone* there who's not spamming. Ah well, who needs the Free Trade Agreement anyway? As for the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (scheme = plan for Americans), we've just discovered this neat alternative ... Hey, that's a *joke*, people.

Thousands of people on the network ARE being effected.

None of those ip's are static either.

I think its a flaw in reporting system.

I don't know .. I pulled four IPs from the list provided in the previous posting, and all came up with recent spam samples, spamtrap hits ... they all looked like they deserved to be listed. Looks more like a case of compromised computers on that network to me.

My newemail address....

<snipped to avoid posting it AGAIN>

Uh, not a good idea to post your brand shiny new e-mail address on a public message board unless you LIKE spam.

Never assume anything on the internet is private. You may want to start looking now for a new e-mail address that you can keep clean. Others here have made several good suggestions.

my business relys on this email account

BigPond/Telstra have a very bad record of being spam tolerant, recently being offline for months because of their incompetence. Iprimus so far are a better option

If you would give an IP address that is on SpamCops sorting/blocklist people would get a better idea of what's happening (SpamCop does not list email addresses)

If your IP is on SpamCops list it means you are spamming or have a security problem. This needs to be addressed by you and quickly. SpamCop is a software program that accurately lists spamsources and delists when spam stops

What? Are you saying that dynamic IPs can't be the source of spam?

No one should be affected. Dynamic IP's should not be used to run a mail server.

Most Admins/ISP's reject all mail from dynamic IP's.

I see no flaw whatsoever.
